The year was a disappointing one with only ten athletes appearing in the rankings and more worryingly only one female.

Melanie Clyde was the sole female representative when she appeared in he three separate events, she finished 25th in the 75m Hurdles, 18th in the 150m and 13th in the Long Jump.

It was left to Colin McMaster again to head the rankings, topping the Senior High Jump with a jump of 2m 13cm, a height which won him the National title.

Steven Lawley finally began to show his potential when wining the National Under 20s 2000m Steeplechase in a time of 6mins 40.10sec, finishing 2nd in the rankings with a time of 6mins 33.14secs. In the longer event, the 3000m Steeplechase he finished 2nd in the rankings with a time of 10mins 11.7secs.

In the Senior events Colin Brodie broke the 50sec barrier in the 400m, finishing 20th with a time of 49.46secs. In the field events Graeme Ferguson continued to perform well, picking up the bronze medals in in the District Championships in the Shot Putt, Discus and Hammer. Sam Armstrong failed to find the form from the previous three years, slipping to third in the rankings with a throw of 60m 45cm.

Jamie Reid and Alaister Russell are still a force to be reckoned with in the distance scene with Alaister finishing 14th and 10th in the 3000m and 5000m respectively. Jamie was proving to be better over the longer distance finishing 2nd in the 10mile road, 7th in the Half Marathon and 5th in the Marathon. During the season he finished 3rd in the National Half Marathon Championships.
